I have tried installing NGINX Mainline version from the NGINX Repository onto Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial, however, the install does not include the IPV6 module.

If I install the Stable version for Ubuntu 16.04 from the NGINX Repository then the IPV6 module is included, as the --with-ipv6 is shown in nginx -V.

I am assuming that this is an oversight on the repository, as surely the mainline version should include the same configure arguments as the stable version (if not more?). As IPV6 is becoming more prevalent with the demise of IPV4, surely the IPV6 module needs to be included in the installs obtained from the NGINX repository?

IPv6 support is configured automatically as long as supported by the OS starting with nginx 1.11.5, see CHANGES:

    *) Change: the --with-ipv6 configure option was removed, now IPv6
       support is configured automatically.
